Emoji Additions: Animals, Compatibility, and More Popular Requests (revision 1) To: UTC Date: February 2nd, 2015 From: Emoji Sub-committee Live Doc: Introduction This set of thirty new symbols which is proposed in this document, are recommendations by Unicode emoji sub-committee. These symbols are considered for incorporation into Unicode for reasons such as compatibility usage, popular requests from online communities, and filling the gaps in the existing set of Unicode emoji. For each proposed symbols, the rationale is added in the Notes column in the tables and there is more elaborate details in the section Discussion. It should be noted that mentioning of number of web search engine results in the Notes should be taken at face value and used with caution when deciding on popularity of a symbol among online communities.

Some of these animal emoji have been frequently requested, in websites suggesting emoji additions, as well as in direct requests to Unicode. Though the animal emoji additions are global, some of the requests for these are from North American sources. At present, we are not aware of similar campaigns or collected requests from elsewhere. Sites with collections of requests for new animal emoji are: 19 Emoji That Really Should Exist (Business Insider) Unicorn (accepted Oct 2014), T Rex head (future tranche), Lobster (future tranche), and Shiba Inu And 18 Emojis That Should Exist But Don t (Buzzfeed) Unicorn (accepted Oct 2014), T Rex head (future tranche), Turkey (accepted Oct 2014) Requests for animal emoji directly to Apple was for unicorn (accepted Oct 2014), and skunk (future tranche). 5 Requests for animal emoji directly to Unicode included squirrel and gorilla. Neither request has yet been accepted and will likely be part of a future tranche. Some zoo top animal lists reviewed were: For bird emoji specifically, Cornell University Lab of Ornithology was consulted. Cornell University has one of, if not the, leading ornithology education and research departments in the world. Their Lab of Ornithology has produced ebird.com with the largest source of global bird sighting and occurrence data. Additionally, they produce one of the two leading lists of birds and their systematic (much genetic) classification The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World. The list of Cornell s Lab of Ornithology top desired bird emoji are (in order): Dove, Owl, Chicken, Eagle, Crow, Crane, Stork, Peacock, Robin or bluebird, Hummingbird, Duck, Pheasant, Magpie, Hawk, Turkey. The Smithsonian Institute (one of the premier zoological organizations) was also consulted for bird emoji. Their list of request bird emoji was as follows: Iconic extinct birds: Passenger Pigeon, Great Auk, Labrador Duck, Ivory-billed Woodpecker, Heath Hen Iconic species of the world: Warbler, Thrush, Toucan, Hummingbird, Puffin, Long-billed Curlew, Bird of Paradise Properties UnicodeData.txt X100;PREGNANT WOMAN;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X106;HERO;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X107;THIEF;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X108;FACE WITH COWBOY HAT;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X205;SELFIE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X208;CLOWN FACE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X209;FACE PALM;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X211;NAUSEOUS FACE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; 6 X212;CALL ME HAND;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X213;RAISED BACK OF HAND;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X214;LEFT-FACING FIST;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X215;RIGHT-FACING FIST;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X216;HAND WITH FIRST AND INDEX FINGER CROSSED;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X217;HAND SHAKE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X218;ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X219;DROOLING FACE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X220;LYING FACE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X703;FOX FACE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X705;EAGLE;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X708;DUCK;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X70B;BAT;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X70C;SHARK;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X70D;OWL;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X800;SCOOTER;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X802;MOTOR SCOOTER;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X803;STOP SIGN;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X900;MAGIC WAND;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X905;CLINKING GLASSES;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X906;HANDCUFFS;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; X907;WILTED FLOWER;So;0;ON;;;;;N;;;;; 7 ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2 PROPOSAL SUMMARY FORM TO ACCOMPANY SUBMISSIONS FOR ADDITIONS TO THE REPERTOIRE OF ISO/IEC Please fill all the sections A, B and C below.
